Tom Creamer's adaptation from the Charles Dickens original remains unchanged, after all. It's not as if the trajectory of Ebenezer Scrooge's journey with the spirits holds narrative surprises — though Larry Yando makes even the bits I've seen several times feel fresh and inspired. (Every time he daintily pats his dank locks before the visit of Christmas Past, it cracks me up.) But director Henry Wishcamper's production this year does something wise and warm. It makes us see that everyone around Scrooge has their own story to tell.
